"For a nice, quiet approach and sheer fishability
, a kayak can't be beat--especially when rigged with an anchor system," Mull says.
Aside from the handling and the ride, how does the Seakeeper improve fishability
? For live baiting along bottom, he not only gets a more stable platform to fish from, but the baits--and weights--hold better on the bottom for a more natural, less distracting presentation--much less bouncing of them on bottom.
On the other hand, given the triad of purposes for which such waters were protected--navigation, commerce, and fisheries--it is not entirely clear why navigability (as opposed to "fishability
" or commercial potential more broadly) was the sole factor in allocating public and private rights, or federal versus state power.
Just because you don't have a giant budget for your fishing boat doesn't mean you have to sacrifice fishability
or performance, thanks to Smoker Craft's Pro Angler 172.
For $12.95 per month or $99.95 for a year, subscribers will not only be able to see the conditions but also a "fishability
index rating" (FIR), which is a number between one and 10 that distills all of the conditions reported by the local affiliate into one simple number that says, essentially, how the fish are biting.
" has long been a goal of binational Great Lakes clean-up strategies.
Benjamin Grumbles, EPA deputy assistant administrator for water, said "Almost 40 percent of assessed waters still do not meet water quality goals (such as swimmability and fishability
) established by states under the Clean Water Act."
Army Corps of Engineers project "has already affected the fishability
of the river from Blue River to Portland," said Springfield fishing guide Aaron Helfrich, who says he has had to cancel four days of fishing so far this year.
Temperature increases due to vegetation removal may adversely affect a stream's biota and generally reduce the stream's fishability
(Karr and Schlosser 1978; Lowrance, Leonard, and Sheridan 1985).
The combination of inshore deck layout and offshore seaworthiness along with loads of storage, multi-use fishability
, and comfortable seating demonstrates that Blue Wave designers did their homework before launching this model.
They provide the fishability
of a hard bead and the feel and movement of a natural egg.
Conversely, today's fishing kayaks also offer the simple, contemplative fishing one might enjoy from a canoe, but with better boat control, stability, and fishability
. Grab a fishing rod, stuff a small jig box in your shirt pocket, slip on a life jacket, and go.
